Marny here...last week's Pillow Fight is resolved. Peace on all fronts. I think the finished pillow is lighthearted and cute!
|Needs more of an interior frame though. The left and right sides of the interior unit look kind of lonely.|
|Green border folded under to test. The Vespa fabric is happily the focus and the darkest fabric adds interest but does not overpower.|
|Interior completed and oversized borders sewn on. They are oversized because the pillow top will shrink a bit with quilting.|
|Next a three layer quilt sandwich made up of a light colored plain fabric, a piece of fusible batting and the pillow top is put together. One piece of painters tape, sort of in the center and placed vertically, and off we go!|
|All the vertical quilting lines completed. That was so quick and so much fun why not run the quilt lines left and right too?|
|The same techniques were employed, again starting somewhat in the center and working out to the edges.|
|All the stitching completed.|
|Seems appropriate to end now, with the light from the setting sun on the top of the pillow!|
Till next week.
